Custom MMIC, a leading developer of performance driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has added an amplifier to its expanding product offerings, the CMD243 26-35 GHz low noise driver amplifier.
The CMD243 is a wideband self-biasing GaAs MMIC balanced driver amplifier that offers 15.5 dB of gain with an output P1dB compression point of +21 dBm. The amplifier operates from a single 5 volt supply and draws just 90 mA typical. The balanced design provides good VSWR matching, along with improved stability and gain flatness.
The amplifier is a 50 ohm matched design, which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. Applications for the CMD243 include military, space and communications systems where small size and high linearity are necessary.
